Welcome back to the second part of episode 166. In today’s episode, we’re going to talk about Irregular Verbs and McDonald’s. You guys know McDonald’s, right.? Big Macs, Filet-o-Fish, Happy Meals? In this lesson, you'll hear a short story about the founding and expansion of the world-famous fast food restaurant. In it, you'll hear 10 Irregular Verbs in the Simple Past Tense. Here they are: 1. To begin (began) 2. To make (made) 3. To speed (sped) 4. To eat (ate) 5. To leave (left) 6. To see (saw) 7. To buy (bought) 8. To take (took) 9. To rise (rose) 10. To grow (grew) The story is shorter than my typical cultural lesson and that’s because the real focus here is mastering verbs. For those of you who have a high intermediate level or higher, you may already know most of these; this lesson will help reinforce the correct past tense forms (they'll be presented in many new contexts!). Watch the corresponding video here.
